Health and hygiene

In the summer term we deliver the Health and Hygiene aspects of our Sex Education Policy (RSE) which complements our science work on life cycles of animals, plants and humans. The children have the opportunity to handle hygiene products such as flannels, soap and deodorant.

How can I support my child?

Regular reading and discussion with your child about their chosen reading book is still very valuable. Encourage them to explain why they chose the book, what do they think will happen next? Can they recall what has happened so far or make predictions? Supporting your child with the learning of their weekly spelling and mastery of the multiplication tables is also a valuable skill.
